2023 NFL draft combine workouts preview: Top prospects, predictions

The 2023 NFL combine is here, and player workouts begin in Indianapolis on Thursday. Hundreds of the best prospects for the NFL draft will do various drills and on-field testing, meet with teams for in-depth interviews and get pre-draft measurements.

Defensive linemen and linebackers are up first, set to participate in the 40-yard dash, vertical leap and broad jump, among other drills. Defensive backs and special teams follow on Friday, quarterbacks and pass-catchers will be on Saturday, and offensive linemen and running backs close things out on Sunday. Thursday's and Friday's workouts will be at 3 p.m. ET, while the weekend exercises will move up to 1 p.m. ET. And ESPN's "NFL Live" will be on-site at Lucas Oil Stadium on Thursday and Friday at 3 p.m. ET.
